Pat Quinn

Lunch in Hackett’s is always a delight, never quite sure who you will meet and what interesting conversations there will be! We shared a table with Pat Quinn who was in Schull for the day.

  1. He is staying in Heron’s Cove and had come into Schull to see whether it had changed since he was last here – “No change, the nature of whole thing doesn’t change.”
  2. Favourite view is walking down to the pier and seeing the dinghies sailing out in the harbour – “It made our hearts leap, in January!” schullsailing.ie
  3. He wished he took up kite surfing 10 years ago and when he was five he wanted to be either in the Navy or a Canadian Mountie.
  4. If he had a couple of extra hours in Schull he would use it to persuade the owners of the Tapas restaurant to open all year round.
  5. He doesn’t like pizza and is a Guinness man.
  6. He will be taking the memory of seeing those young sailors in the harbour on a bright January afternoon with him when he leaves!

What is it about Schull and the Mizen that attracts people here? Who are the people who populate this quirky little village on the edge of Europe? Why do they come? How do they find us? What do they DO?

Here they tell their stories, responding to the same questions they all have very different answers.
